Chicago, IL’s premier noise terrorists, WINTERS IN OSAKA, have tapped Haunted Hotel Records to release their next album. The record is due to drop in March 2009, and features guest appearances by Rich Hoak (BRUTAL TRUTH, TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION), Topon Das (FUCK THE FACTS), DEATH AGONIES (aka THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE), Chris Dodge (DESPISE YOU, SPAZZ, EAST WEST BLAST TEST), John Hoffman (WEEKEND NACHOS), and Toney Vast Binder (HARPOON, 7000 DYING RATS).
Mixed and mastered by studio member Greg Ratajczak of Plague Bringer, Molded to Crawl clocks in at 36 minutes and features four songs of heavily distorted, powergrinding electronic mayhem. Imagine the bastard child of Napalm Death and Merzbow, Mosquito Control-era Isis on PCP or a Nadja remix done by the devil himself – Molded to Crawl is the soundtrack to your nightmares. Taking shreds of inspiration from grindcore, doom, power electronics, punk rock, noise, and the oncoming apocalypse itself, Winters in Osaka have managed to achieve the damn near impossible and create something truly frightening. Molded to Crawl’s gloomy atmosphere, seething drones and buried vocals evoke a feeling of pure dread in the listener, and are sure to leave a lasting impression.
